Minced meat sauce


  1. Heat the oil in a pan and roast the onion.
  2. Add minced meat and saute.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Add water if required.

A very common dish, where this sauce is used is pasta with minced meat sauce.


  • 500 gr minced meat (beef prefered)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 kg fresh tomatoes (or 1 small tin preserved tomatoes)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. I thought this recipe also had cinnamon in it or the little black cloves – don’t know what they are called but I have seen them in it…is there a variation of this recipe?
